    Amazing hideaway

    What a beautiful and relaxing place! I stayed with my husband and we absolutely loved it! The place is not huge , but has everything you need for vacation. The food was fantastic, we absolutely loved italian cuisine. They even have live music, witch was absolutely stunning. You can do excursions if you’d like to, or stay only on the resort. They have really amazing “entertainment team”, who takes care of all fun activities. Mercedes, Maggie, Carlos and Alfons were incredibly friendly and fun!!! You have that feeling that you know them for longest time. We played beach volleyball almost every day, rode bicycles with them, water aerobics and did other activities... It was so much fun! Everybody on this resort were very professional and tried to make your stay as perfect as could be. We met a lot if people who was coming back 5 or even 10 th time. That says a lot about the place. We definitely recommend this place, and we will be back! ❤️❤️❤️

    First Visit to Playacar

    Couldn't have asked for a better first-time experience. Every aspect of our stay exceeded expectations. Great location (short taxi ride to the city center), comfortable spacious rooms, excellent food, and wonderful staff! Special shout-out to Alfonso Montalvo from the activities department - very engaging and took the time to check in with us regularly ensuring we were having a great time! Genaro Ek took excellent care of us at the pool - always had a drink waiting for us without having to ask so definitely ask for him! Thank you to the entire Royal Hideaway staff for making our trip great. We will absolutely be back soon!

    10 Year Wait was Worth It

    Fine dining isn't always the highlight of my vacation...but at Royal Hideaway Playacar it exceeded all my expectations. Ventanas Michelin Star chef Alejandro Sanchez's cooking inspired me to try new dishes. Every night was something new from duck meatballs to grilled octopus to Rosemary ice cream. Really?! Sanchez surprised us at lunch with a freshly caught rare 100 pound Blue fin tuna that he proceeded to filet before our eyes. It was to die for! His culinary ingenuity is beyond impressive. It is for that reason alone this will be the resort that i will revisit time and time again! The service is outstanding. Nicola s, Luis and Alexis are top notch. The beds are super comfortable. The maid service great too. Very clean. Lastly the beach is large and great for swimming. I cannot wait for the next trip!

We will be celebrating all of is turning 50 yrs old and our anniversary. I hope that covid-19 does not change the experience we have always had RH. It is simply the very best resort we have ever stayed at! Book it you won't regret it!
